After World War II 1945, the US became a global superpower taking a hegemonic place in the world system. At the end of last century, after collapse of the Soviet Union the US was left as a single superpower. Today the US is dividing from within, and there is no more unity within the “melting pot” which can lead to disastrous outcomes.
Turkish President Erdogan has a new plan to control the Middle East and its resources. Downing of Russian SU-24 in the area where the oil flows from ISIL-controlled territories into Turkey, is not accidental. Turkey shares at least one goal with the terrorists, to wipe out Kurds in order to control oil and gas reserves in the Kurdish regions.
In the wake of the September 11 attacks, former US president George W. Bush, posed an important question: "Why do they hate us?" referring to the Arab and Islamic world. Yet, he ignored the fact that extremism, hatred, and terrorism are the outcome of the terrorist organizations created by the US.
As the terrorist threat spilled outside the borders of the Middle East region, Western powers are ready to jump into the battleground, expanding military interventions and airstrikes. While the same powers are responsible for creating this terrorist threat, the intentions to destabilize oppressed countries are not fading.
